DIVERSITY PROJECT: Talk About Black – Changing Words into Actions
5th October 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:15 pm
In the summer of 2020 thousands of people supported the #IAM campaign in support of racial fairness and over 1,600 professionals in the finance industry and beyond registered to attend #talkaboutblack’s Black History Month, with a desire to enact change.
Over a year on from peak public outrage, with many public figures in the UK and abroad still feeling the need to ‘take the knee’ #TalkAboutBlack asks what has changed, what have we learnt, what actions are we taking and what more can we do?
They are delighted to be joined by Clive Myrie and David Olusoga OBE to discuss what has changed since the BLM protests of 2020.
Also invited are senior professionals from across the corporate sphere that are leaders in delivering programmes for change and prominent spokespeople to discuss the new initiatives representing best practice, the challenges still faced and the possible solutions.
Join us to explore what projects and programmes are helping to enact structural change in the UK workplace and make entry into the financial industry more equitable.
